Good Beginner Quantum Mechanics

  1. Jun 4, 2014 #1
    Math level is through the first year of calculus, so differential calculus. I want a book with some math in it and wouldn't object to one where it would explain key concepts (likely linear algebra). I've heard Griffiths text is good but not sure how good for a motivated high school student. Thanks.

    I think first it will be better to pick up some books on vectors and multivariate calculus.

    I agree with TheAustrian. First do some vector calculus and multivariable calculus.I think Calculus and Analytic Geometry by George B Thomas will be fine. Then look forwards to Griffiths.

    Connorp, does this mean you haven't done integration? Integration is pretty difficult compared to the earlier math so you'll want to start there, learn it very well indeed. That Thomas book recommended by Modest Learner will be a good way to proceed.
